Swindall lied to a federal grand jury about his knowledge that the funds were from a drug trafficking operation, which was refuted by the undercover tapes. While one of the perjury charges was dismissed by District Judge Richard C. Freeman, the jury convicted Swindall on nine counts and sentenced to one year in prison and a fine of $30,450.[1][2][3]

Swindall died in his sleep on July 11, 2018 at his home in Johns Creek, Georgia, aged 67.[4][5]
